Live. In Dreams Awake


“Our truest life is when we are in dreams awake.” – Henry David Thoreau

Live. In dreams Awake.

She had spent months…
two spring seasons reading over each journal,
each note book, each word.

She had wept for everything she had experienced.
She had grieved for everything she had lost.
She had felt joy for everything she had triumphed.

Would this be the year?
Would it actually happen?
Get done? Published?

She turned the page in her journal.
Could she trust and breathe?
Or would it become more like an old nightmare that haunted her dreams?

Understanding washed through her like light flooding a room.
Her pen moved to offer her insights.
Words giving her hope. Courage.

Word by word.
Page by page.
Day by day.

She could do this.
She would get her first “official” book done.
This year 2015.

She lives in dreams awake.
